President Trump and the Morgan

Yesterday, TV personality Piers Morgan achieved a career high when he interviewed President Trump for a few minutes in Davos, Switzerland, where world leaders have congregated to talk economics.

Naturally, Morgan tried to make it all about himself, but we still managed to glean some interesting facts about Mr Trump in the few seconds Morgan let him talk; and very encouraging facts they are too.

Mr Trump does not believe in man-made global warming, although he supports, quite passionately it seems,  clean air and clean water. He supports the right to bear arms. He is not a feminist. He has no idea who Jeremy Corbyn or Sadiq Kahn are. He doesn't much regret retweeting the Britain First videos. He will visit the UK, possibly twice. And the UK will be front of the line for a trade deal come Brexit.

Perhaps most surprisingly, President Trump came across as far more diplomatic than one might expect, not least in giving Piers Morgan the time of day.
